Myrtle Beach Experience 2010
Early in August, 9 students from RAC and 10 students from HS Bonn-Rhein-Sieg accompanied by Edeltraud Botzum traveled to the US in order to participate in a study program in South Carolina - enabling them to work with students from Coastal Carolina University and lots of international students.
Students participated in lectures and classes on a wide variety of subjects. This way they had the opportunity to find out in what ways the academic environments of German universities and US universities differ - and whether studying in the US for a semester or even a year might be an attractive option. Excursions (e.g. to Brookgreen Gardens and Charleston), social events (e.g. a roommate dinner), cultural activities, sports events (e.g. a baseball game and a golf course) and other elements provided the students with a unique chance to experience some glimpses of American culture - not only in a classroom setting. The participants also had to complete a number of assignments for their classes.
The successful participants of the program were awarded a certificate during the final ceremony. Click here to watch a short video about the program!
